Freshly made Chicken Salad with Tomatoes from my Garden, what a great lunch plate.

Fresh made chicken salad and homegrown tomatoes make a great summer plate.
It isn't often I find leftover fried chicken in my refrigerator but for some reason there it was. Normally we eat cold chicken as well as freshly cooked. Not one to miss an opportunity I thought I'd slip all the skin and breading off and put together a dish of chicken salad.

Here is how it came together:

6 pieces fried chicken, breasts and thighs crust and skin removed and pulled from the bones, diced
2 stalks celery cleaned and diced
4-6 sweet pickles diced
4 eggs hard cooked and diced
salt and pepper
2-3 T. sweet pickle juice
1/2 to 3/4 C. Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip, whichever you prefer

Combine all ingredients together and taste. Adjust any of the last 3 ingredients to taste. Chill and serve on a lettuce leaf with sliced red ripe tomato.

Just another dime stretching dish in these uncertain times!!
